SYNOPSIS: The Infiltrators is an unlikely blend of activism and suspense that makes a compelling case for the abolishment of ICE. Instead of fleeing in the other direction, members of the National Immigrant Youth Alliance purposely get themselves detained. Once inside a for-profit transitional center in Florida they work to help others, and document injustice while never losing sight of the human suffering caused by an inhumane system that separates families and imprisons people without trials.
